    My K5 has the factory oil cooler and it leaks.Do I really need it?Is it valuable enough to justify the cost of new high pressure hoses?

    Find a shop that makes hydraulic hoses. They can replace the rubber lines for ya. The $h!t that GM will sell you will just leak again soon. :mad: I bought new lines from GM for my S-10 ($90! :eek: ). They were leaking within a year.

    I had the lines on our Suburban "fixed" at a hydraulic place ( $30 :xmas: ) and they haven't leaked AT ALL in over 2 years. :thumb:

    Yep, just remove the hoses and drop them off at the shop. Mine were done in about 2 hours and cost about 20% of what GM wanted for new ones that would just leak again. :cool1:
